In the period of some several arduous years since the current President (a Pennsylvania native) of the United States Joe Biden entered the oval office and became the Commander in Chief of America, the state of the leading nation in the western world has markedly deteriorated. Indeed, Biden has presided over a period of serious economic and social instability in the United States domestically. Rampant inflation peaked in late 2022 at levels not witnessed in decades, and 60% of Americans are estimated to be living paycheck to paycheck. Wages have stagnated and the buying power of the dollar continues to decline. Paired with this, the demand for housing remains seriously high and the prices of residences and the ratio of them in comparison to income is exorbitant. In a recent report by Fox business, it is estimated that home ownership is simply impossible and unaffordable for Americans earning the median income over around $70,000 a year in 99% of the nation. What’s worse; at the southern border millions of illegals have entered the nation in the last two years, and thousands cross the border each day. These individuals often compete with low income Americans for employment, keeping wages artificially low.
Internationally, Biden’s weak leadership has had far ranging effects on the state of global politics. In 2021, Biden orchestrated a botched withdrawal from Afghanistan in which 13 American service members were killed and billions of dollars in military equipment was abandoned to the Taliban. Currently, Israel is at war with Hamas in the middle east, and a general sense of instability in the world at large is prevalent.
Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022, and now two major conflicts in Europe and the middle east threaten to escalate into a global war. Recently, as casualties mount in Ukraine, president Volodymyr Zelensky replaced the nation’s medical military commander in an effort to promote widespread changes to military organization and better medical care.
